The Fifth Element

We are very interested in the material-based approach to design. Therefore, in this task, we focused on how to work with different materials and whether AI can be a tool in this context. It is quite important to approach the studies playfully and experimentally, and for the students to work together to develop concepts for how the experiments can take final form as furniture, clothing, or lighting. Earth, water, fire, and air constitute the four elements .that the students based their work on. AI was the fifth element that the students tested as an idea generation tool.
